Quick card for HIM


I am popping in to show you a quick card which can be done in like half an hour (I am not a fast crafter) for the men in our lives. Masculine cards are a big big challenge for me, I am lucky as my husband loves whatever I give him, even if it is pinky ūüėÄ But I do try to stretch my boundaries.

For this little notecard, I die cut a kraft card base 4 1/4 x 4 1/4. I used the largest stitched square die in the SSS set from a pretty patterned paper with glittery and glossy hearts on it. The focal element on my card is made with a die from Penny Black and I used a wonderful rubbery feel thick luxury red cardstock (I got it from a friend of mine as a gift, it is so pretty). It really feels like velvet paper. I glued everything with liquid glue.

Actually I made 3 cards to have on hand when I need to, but I ran out of the kraft cardstock, so I made 2 white card bases and added a kraft layer on top to look like it is all kraft. Little trick when I don’t have enough of the required colour.

Very simple card, perfect for a love note for our beloved ones. I am entering this card set to the SSS Wednesday Challenge It’s Hip to be Square.

I hope you like it and will return again soon for more inspiration.

See you,




Csak beugrottam egy k√∂nnyen elk√©sz√≠thetŇĎ pasis lappal. Sz√°momra nem k√∂nnyŇĪ feladat igaz√°n f√©rfias lapot k√©sz√≠teni, de pr√≥b√°lkozom. Olyan szerencs√©s vagyok, hogy a f√©rjem minden lapot √©rt√©kel, m√©g ha r√≥zsasz√≠nŇĪ is ūüėČ

ElŇĎsz√∂r is egy kraft kartonb√≥l elk√©sz√≠tettem a k√©peslap alapomat (4 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch), majd egy √∂lt√©smint√°s n√©gyzet v√°g√≥k√©ssel egy Lidl-ben vett pap√≠rk√©szlet barn√°s-sz√≠ves mint√°j√ļ pap√≠rj√°t v√°gtam m√©retre. A f√≥kuszban egy Penny Black v√°g√≥k√©ssel v√°gott panel less, amit egy kedves ismerŇĎs√∂mtŇĎl kapott piros kartonb√≥l v√°gtam. Ez egy nagyon k√ľl√∂nleges, gumis bevonat√ļ karton, gy√∂ny√∂rŇĪ a sz√≠ne √©s tapint√°sra selymesen matt hat√°s√ļ, mintha b√°rsonypap√≠r lenne. Foly√©kony ragaszt√≥val mindent felragasztottam, bel√ľlre pedig egy feh√©r n√©gyzetet v√°gtam a m√°r haszn√°lt sablonnal, az √ľzenetnek.

Igaz√°b√≥l 3 kis lapot k√©sz√≠tettem, de elfogyott a kraft kartonom, √≠gy egy kis tr√ľkk√∂t alkalmaztam. Feh√©r k√©peslap alapra ragasztottam egy kraft n√©gyzetet, ami pont betakarta az eg√©sz elŇĎlapot. Erre ker√ľlt a mint√°s pap√≠r √©s a piros kiv√°gat.

EgyszerŇĪ diz√°jn, hamar k√©szen van, √©s t√∂k√©letes egy gyors szerelmes √ľzenethez.

Rem√©lem tetszik ūüôā
